Tutorial Diamond top Card

July 4, 2008
Since i made this card I have had a few people asking me how i made it so I have decided to do a tutorial on my blog.

Firstly take an A4 piece of card stock and fold it length ways down the centre. I then trimmed the card so that it was 20cm’s wide (10cm’s either side of fold).
Open the cardstock and mark 10cm’s down each side and score accross card.

From the centre poing of that score (down the middle of the card mark 3cm’s, then down ech side from the score line, measure and mark at 7cm’s.

score between the 7cm mark and 3cm mark on each side.

valley fold on the 10cm score line and mountain fold on the 7cm score line.

    If you cut the square of the top.
    cut down the centre line between the two marked points so it folds over like collar, then add the square back on the top afterwards it’s easier to make.

    but great card was looking for measurements to make one and had lost mine. thanks so much
